John Stewart and Bill O'Reilly Have an Adult Conversation

New Yorker

Jon Stewart ventured into enemy territory tonight, taking a seat across from Bill O'Reilly in the No Spin Zone for a little one on one. Their much-hyped conversation was fairly predictable, with O'Reilly vigorously defending the integrity of Fox News and Stewart shaking his head in disbelief. The whole interview was far less combative than we hoped. Stewart even offered O'Reilly a compliment! "You have become, in some ways, the voice of sanity here," he said. Of course, he followed it up by saying that's "like being the thinnest kid at fat camp." When the whole thing ended, there were two highlights to take away from it— Stewart's succinct summary of what's wrong with Fox at the end of this clip and O'Reilly's bizarre Pakistani accent. What was up with that?
